It just figures

Growing up in the land of perpetual rain (or at least around it), you’d expect a girl like me to know better than to keep my car windows open under the threat of showers. And for the most part I do. Back home, I’d only been caught with my windows down (not my pants, or I […]

Dating: nothing more than a second job?
